these fittings shall also be provided to


ElectraNet for future reference.

This section provides details of drafting


standards and drawing management to be used
on this contract.

During Construction work, the Construction


contractor is required to manually mark up any
alteration required to the for Construction
drawings.
Upon
completion
of
the
construction works, these marked up drawings
are forwarded to the Designer whose task it is
to add these changes to the relevant electronic
drawings. Once added, these drawings become
as built drawings and bear a new alpha
revision.

5.2. DRAWINGS- FORMAT


All drawings shall be provided in accordance
with the ElectraNet drawing management
system, AIM.
Transmission line Project drawings shall be
created using Microstation or AutoCad
software.
A New drawing request form will be
provided by ElectraNet in electronic Excel
format to be completed by the Designer to
facilitate registration in AIM of all new
drawings.
When initially developing a design package,
the Designer may use temporary sequential
numbers. On completion of the for
information drawings, the Designer shall
request a New drawing request form from
the
ElectraNet

administrator. Upon receipt of the completed
New drawing request form from the
Designer, the drawing administrator will
provide a list of sequential numbers to be used
for the Project.
The Designer shall provide drawings marked
for tender or for information at the 15%
review stage. All drawings provided for
independent verification and for Private
Certification to be included in the Design
package, shall be marked for Construction.
Drawings shall be provided to ElectraNet in

electronic format of the for tender or for
information and for Construction drawings
shall be in PDF format. The electronic format
of the as built drawings shall be in PDF &
AutoCad/Microstation format, depending on
the software used.
The drawings marked for Construction and
as built shall include the Manufacturers
name and part number/catalogue reference for
each fitting used. Manufacturers Drawings of
